Oxidation Number of Nitrogen

Oxidation state of nitrogen can always lie between -3 to -5 depending on the elements it get bonded in the chemical reaction. For example, oxidation state of nitrogen in ammonium ion (NH4 +) is -3, it is because all the eight valence electrons gets bonded with the nitrogen atom as it is more electro-negative than hydrogen.
